…also known as gilgeori toast.
I watched many Korean films years ago and I heard this name mentioned a few time, so I decided to check it out and make it and yeah it was really nice.
I decided to make this again and it was just as nice and filling as I remembered.
Yields : 1
- ⅓ cup shredded carrot
- 1 cup thinly shredded green cabbage
- 1 spring onion (thinly sliced)
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 thick slices white bread
- 2/3 teaspoon white sugar
- 2 thin slices smoked ham
- 1 slice mild Cheddar cheese
- 1 tablespoon ketchup
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- Combine carrot, cabbage, spring onion, black pepper, cayenne, and salt.
- Mix with your hands for about 20-30 seconds until soft and seasoned.

- Set aside.
- Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
- Add bread slices and toss to make sure both sides are well buttered.
- Grill bread until both sides are beautifully toasted and golden brown and starting to get a little crispy.
- Remove to a plate.
- Heat remaining butter in the same skillet over medium heat.
- Add cabbage mixture; cook and simultaneously mix by using the edge of a spatula to chop down on the surface while pushing the edges up and over the top.
- As the mixture starts to hold its shape, form into a rectangle that’s same length as two slices of bread
- Split the rectangle in half and continue to cook until golden brown; flip and continue on the opposite side, 3 to 4 minutes total.

- Top with sugar.
